Back from a very successful Style X exhibition

We’re back in New York after an amazing Style X exhibition. We met wonderful people, listened to great music, and enjoyed every second of this event that is shaping up to be the ultimate convergence of music, independent culture and style.

_

We are also thrilled to have had the opportunity to connect and share with other amazing emerging brands. Check out our friends: Cavortress, We Are the Process, Proxy Apparel, Tikkr Watch & XRAY Jeans and all the other brands at Style X.

_

Stay tuned for more coverage and check out our photos of the event on Lumete’s Tumblr page.

Thank you to the Style X sponsors and all of the media that covered the event, including Huffpost Style, StyleCaster, Fashionista, Society Hae, Stuff Boston, The Austin Chronicle & The Austin-American Statesman.

_

On the night before Style X, all the designers were taken on a tour (aka Shop Hop) of fabulous independent Austin Boutiques, including Estilo, By George, HEM Jeans & Plain Ivey Jane. We also stopped by the SXSW celebration event at our fabulous stockist Spectacle Sunglasses while we were in town.

_

A super-special thanks to our family: Glen Warren, Charlotte Warren & Debbie Pace for all their invaluable help & support and the incredible work they did on our booth display. Also a big thank you to our dear friends Lauren & Matt for being such gracious and fun hosts. We could not have done this without you!

Meet the Lumete Art Dolls at our Style X booth A16

inspired by Lumete Sunglasses, Austin-based artist and dear friend Myriam Powell created these beautiful art dolls especially for our Style X display. Myriam’s dolls are hand sculpted of paper clay. No molds are used in the process, making each doll one of a kind. Visit  Myriam Powell Designs on Etsy.
_
A special thanks Khannie Rychlikova at Laska Photography for her amazing pictures.
_
Come visit the Lumete at Booth A16, try on our collection and play with our sunglasses-wearing dolls!
The Style X showcase will take place on March 18 from 3-9pm and March 19th from noon to 9pm at the Austin Convention Center.

We’re Headed South By Southwest!

We’re getting really excited for our trip to Austin next week for SXSW and Style X!

_

We were so happy to hear that style would be joining the other creative fields at South by Southwest. SXSW kicks off this Friday in Austin - best of luck to the other NYC’ers rocking SXSW! “Cuz we love tacos too, yo!” We attended the NYxSW demo night last week - there’s some really exciting tech going on in NYC!

_

The Style X showcase will take place on March 18 from 3-9pm and March 19th from noon to 9pm at the Austin Convention Center.

_

We love that Style X is continuing the SXSW tradition as a launching pad for new artists by selecting emerging designers. Style X at SXSW is the dream exhibition platform for a brand like ours, since it places style within a broader cultural continuum that fuses music, film and interactive media into one powerful movement of independent artistic expression.

_

Several cities have a fashion week… but Austin’s Style X will be a whole new animal. A style showcase with free entry for the public, Style X will feature tradeshow booths that double as pop-up shops and a runway show with SXSW musicians as models. Rather than fashion editors and celebrity stylists, the customers will be in the front row. The focus is not about what’s “in” or “out” for a particular season. Style X offers a showcase for you to discover a piece you love and choose to find a place for it in your own individual style. And the best part is… If you like what you see on the runway, no need to wait for fall - just visit the booths and pick it up!

Meet Cavortress, our new friend also showing at Style X!

We are very excited to meet the other emerging brands next week at Style X! We are fortunate to have met one of them already: Cavotress, the fantastic Charleston-based women’s summer-wear line. In search of the perfect sunglasses for their 2011 lookbook, Cavortress discovered Lumete through Style X and asked if we could send a few pieces for their photoshoot. It was a match made in heaven - check out the gorgeous results! Amazing work by photographer Cyle Suesz (also editor of Vent), with beautiful models from Tout. Check out this Style X interview of fabulous Cavotress owner, Julie Wheat.

Announcing our new stockist TG-170 on NYC’s Lower East Side!

We are so proud to announce that Lumete sunglasses will be the first sunglasses brand to be carried by Lower East Side institution: TG-170.

_
TG-170 has been a destination boutique for the fashion forward since 1992, back when the area was more gangster than hipster. Check out this Black Book magazine story about the amazing owner Terri Gillis. We LOVE this store and we’re so excited that Lumete is now on display there. Seriously pinching ourselves.
_
She recently moved the store from upper to lower Ludlow, you know, because the Low Lower East Side is the new Lower East Side. Visit TG-170 at Ludlow and Broome!
